Bird of Eden and Monkeyland

Bird of Eden and Monkeyland are one of the three Sanctuaries under The South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance (SAASA). Bird of Eden was an incredible spectacle of different birds and the park consists of a giant aviary with a boardwalk throughout taking you to the various different places. This is the largest aviary in the world and it’s a perfect opportunity to photograph a really impressive list of free-flying colorful birds ranging from parrots, to many different kinds of pigeons, as well as water birds such as swans, geese, ducks and even some flamingoes. It’s hard to choose a favourite bird from a list of beautiful birds, but Grey African parrot would still be my favourite of all.  We went to Monkeyland as it just started raining, so our guide said the rain might limit us from seeing all the 11 species of monkeys. However, we did pretty well and we saw quite few primates jumping and roaming around for food. I was very impressed with the large 12 hectares enclosure and the superb condition provided for the primates.Overall both sanctuaries are great opportunity to learn about and photograph incredible species that are hard to spot out in the wild. The process of eliminating photographs to fit this post from hundreds and hundreds of images captured at both ranches was proven difficult. However, I have selected my besties just to show a flavour from my experience.
